Karen Bishop’s Long Absence

rBdhx02k7aUrF3QX61qe1wOilwY61SNwpm2X0uAcxRstMExooXcXMzkFDqgoEfap273n4GgewA1UhyZ0YpTNPcOIX3K8DJeG0P6A7nbopxkkUpXzsWx_7v520X5DlOAG80Il61a90yPXgg=w346-h486-pSome “first wavers” who’ve been aware of early way-showers (early as in late 90’s – 1st decade of the new millennium) will remember Karen Bishop. Karen shared volumes of her personal ‘ascension’ experiences quite transparently. We were “with her” through a lot of twists and turns. Then Karen basically stopped sharing.

She’s come out of her cave, so to speak, to give us an idea of her current status. Whether you followed her journeys back then or not, you might find this letter of interest. This shift is anything but one size fits all, as we are all now aware… in some cases painfully so. I have to admit, I tend to agree with Karen’s thought that the early wave has had the roughest time with the new energies.

I used to liken this group as the ‘classic cars’ that did not come off the assembly line with all the “newfangled accoutrements” of the new models… the new ones being designed for these energies to begin with. Another analogy might be computers; they can only be upgraded so far before they just can’t go any further without crashing.

Of course cars and computers don’t FEEL as do humans (and all sentients), which adds critical dimensions to the experience. We spiritual writers tend to feel reticent to share the travails; we believe people only want the cheery stuff that boosts their mood. Safe to say, many suffer in silence rather than “let on” to the public.

Here’s Karen’s update.

Love all,


Hello everyone,

Some of you have caringly inquired over the past months about my well-being. Some have been concerned, others have been angry that I had not posted, and yet others intuitively knew that something was amiss and I was struggling. The latter was the case.

I have been experiencing challenges far greater than I could ever have imagined from the new energies which arrived in October of 2014. And these energies have left me in considerable physical pain and with an inability to even sit upright for all these months. But I would like to take this opportunity to explain why this was the case, as it relates to our ongoing unfolding of a very new reality and a new and exciting earth with a brand new positioning in the cosmos. And as has always been the case with ascension, the process has created unusual and interesting outcomes and manifestations for those of us in the forefront of this amazing and never before attempted feat.

We had to move into a space never occupied before, as a planet and as a group of souls inhabiting that planet. The new space vibrated much higher than where we originated, thus. . . . continued and massive purifications were needed, along with a regular dismantling of the old. For me, the most severe part of the dismantling which occurred in October, 2014, created intense energy hitting my body like a wrecking ball in 15 minute to half hour intervals, literally knocking me to the ground where I would be traumatized for several hours afterward. The dismantling energies actually began months earlier, but then they were simply wisps, like a gentle caressing breath. But once we opened into a whole new space and platform in October, we were much closer to the new and needed to align accordingly. We were literally carving out a new space where nothing existed before.

The cleansings and purifications, which arrive from the sun and create a tremendous amount of heat, have been on-going and near constant as we absolutely must stay in alignment with the new with no chance of slipping back into the old. Lots of restructuring going on. . . a new reality in the making. Layers and layers and layers were being removed, and for some of us who have been at this for a while, these on-going purifications really hit our bodies deep within as we had already begun with very little left in the way of boundaries. A great amount of heat is generated when creating something entirely new, along with the advent of burning off the old. So then, great movement requires great heat and forceful energy along with heat creating a burning off of the old. Basically, it has been just plain hot with episodes of burning thrown in for good measure! And all the while we have been integrating the energies of the new as well. No new news here with any of this. Seems like such old and outdated information now anyway as we have moved so far beyond it now!

Now for the fore-runners. How have we/they been affected and why has it been a bit different for us than for others? The fore-runners have the ability to hold a tremendous amount of energy/light within themselves. This is why we many times gain weight during the process (more mass to hold more light) or at other times, for instance during a dismantling phase, lose weight (I have dropped 25 pounds). In addition, because our bodies are morphing into something which vibrates very high, we cannot ingest much of anything as our bodies cannot tolerate much while they are changing into crystalline as is the new grid.

It is precisely because we have the ability to hold so much more light, that some of us have been held back. If we were to move ahead too quickly, we would disrupt the balance (this occurred during the first ascension plan and it is not being allowed to occur again). Thus, many of us have been blocked from moving anywhere. . . . right, left, or forward. It was important that the new grid form with a solid and tightly held together frame in order to support itself and whatever will ultimately be created upon and within it. In this way, everyone on the earth is going along for the journey if they have chosen to stay.

Back to the fore-runners. Because we are in queue at the very front of the line, and because the new world reality has God, the Divine, love (or whatever you prefer) as the air that it breathes, these souls have agreed to commune with God and then turn around and embrace all others who follow. In this, their offerings, whether it be simply as they go about their day or as a literal offering of a service to others, will have the Divine at their core as they will by then, completely embody this loving energy themselves.

Thus, we are being held in check. In a full court press, a full body mammogram, an intense compression that keeps us in place until we reach our intended destination. Add to this the fact that an entirely new reality and grid is in the making and being that we are poised so far out front, without this holding in place, we would be flailing around in the cosmos like Sandra Bullock in Gravity during this transitional time when a whole new grid is being formed in a space of emptiness.

So then, come the challenges. Cannot go anywhere new until there is somewhere to go, and cannot anchor back into the old either. If these fore-runners attempt to anchor in anywhere new before the new grid is ready, it would be like exiting out the side of the birth canal. Premature, grossly uncomfortable, and along with it can come a massive body cleanse in an attempt to create the release and complete freedom needed, and I can attest, these cleansings are none too comfortable. The fore-runners need to be free and clear and attached to nothing until they become completely attached to the Godhead first and then ultimately exit the endlessly long birth canal when the time is right. Like children sitting at the window sill looking out, some of us have had to simply watch the world go by while we remained stuck in the house. But to emphasize once again, an entirely new world was in the making and this was no easy feat!

For those souls who came specifically for this process, we hatched out of our eggs (or cocoons if you will) at the advent of the solstice in June. The long 9 month personal hibernation of restructuring and morphing was then complete. So many on the planet were thrust forward and released at that time, that a massive bottleneck was created. For some, it felt as though we were left behind, that nothing would ever, ever change, and that it was time that we took stock and accepted reality as it was; our bodies still barely functioning, our finances in shambles, no hope to be found. But then quite suddenly, the bottleneck was cleared. Things may have felt better, but we were still held back.

So then, our eggs had hatched but we were still in the nest, unable to spread our wings. With this monumental 9 month feat of new creation now complete, it was time to create a space to place our near new bodies (even though we are still experiencing the effects of newly arriving energies and are not yet rejuvenated or revived). As a planet we had reached critical mass where more light existed than darkness in December of 2014. But it didn’t much matter, it seemed, as nothing much seemed to be changing. At that time there was still much more to be accomplished.

The Lion’s Gate on August 8th and the days preceding and following it created another pivotal point for thrusting forward. It pushed us into a space where we could really see and be present in the new. When the energies of 8:8 began to dissipate, for some, so did the vision and experience of the new, but then we had a most ferocious anchoring in on August 22 and this immense anchoring greatly served to stabilize the grid and the formation of its rungs, thus bringing these spaces back to us once again.

The thrust now is on the creation of the new grid. Much is moving around with the rungs under our feet. There exist many groups and many rungs, all having experiences at differing times. People are changing jobs, geographical locations, and personal relationships are changing. . . all in accordance with an alignment with the new grid. The shifting sands continue to shift. But things are different nonetheless. Instead of the rug continually being pulled out from under us, it is now being put into a more stable base. There is a net now forming, and even so, there are still holes and gaps within it. But it is forming. And when it is strong enough, the fore-runners will be released and for many, given the supports needed for creating a brand new beginning. We can know as well, that during the time the new grid is forming, we will move up, down, sideways, and even seemingly backwards in terms of what we may see as our new creations and very new spaces.

Even so, during this seemingly endless process while still in the canal, God is seeping through, love is arriving, and much is being put into place before the final release. In this way, “everything” will not happen upon the final release as some of it is happening now. In many ways we will be ready beforehand, even though some of us continue to feel acutely depleted, physically broken down, discouraged, and uber crabby. When these intensely uncomfortable holding energies lift, what we have gathered and uncovered until then will blossom like a bulb long buried beneath the ground. We will find that while we thought we were empty and had forgotten much of everything, we will easily remember everything, and know that it has been within us all along. As Theodore Roethke has said, “Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light.” And this will be so. So although we have been through so much, perhaps feeling beaten and even abused beyond our ability to cope, we will call our spirits back, our souls will rejoice, and we will become what has long been buried deep within us.

Our new spaces have already been selected. They are patiently waiting for our arrival in a new reality that far exceeds our expectations. For in this way, the Divine Beloved knows far more than we do, and has lined up (and things are doing just that at the moment. . . lining up) a new existence for us that is far greater than we could ever have imagined on our own. We continue, as always, to be held in the wings of angels as this process continues to unfold.

The creation of a brand new reality, an entirely new world with God as its center, comes from the breath of God itself, even though at times it easily seems otherwise. The Divine Beloved is ushering us in, and in this way we can know that all our needs will be perfectly met during stressful times of transition, if even in ways that may surprise us. We need only surrender to this loving presence as it holds us close, rocking our souls in its loving embrace during times of pain and tears, and know that it has never left us and never will. . . as we will, in time, become this loving presence ourselves as we rock the suffering in our own loving arms.

September will be another very pivotal month, and it appears that through the advent of the fall equinox (and on into the end of the year), there is a strong possibility for a much anticipated release for some of us. But nothing is set in stone, and as always, it is entirely up to how things look for the whole at that time. If things have lined up accordingly, and if the new grid is strong enough, this time will be the time of our new birth. Even so, so many of us have learned about acceptance, about gratitude for anything and everything, about continuing to embrace what is, and the wonderful new energy of “everything belongs,” that holding onto an outcome may not hold the lure that it once did. But no matter, as when the time is right, we will by then truly know what is important to us and what it is that we wish to create.

During this time of massive restructuring and continued purification I could not write. I simply did not have the strength and when I attempted to write even that, I was blocked. I would upload a new web page and it would be blank (as was I !). And many times I had absolutely no idea where we were or what was going on as I was so traumatized and so physically uncomfortable, that I could not have written anyway. I had to learn entirely new coping skills which I am still in the process of learning.

Although I will no longer be posting about ascension as I have done for these many years, because I have moved on to fiction writing, I will be writing about the new energies still, just in the form of fictional stories that will continue to bring forth the messages needed during our time of evolution into a new and higher vibrating reality with love at its core, therefore giving a more personal and intimate experience. As some of you may have experienced, the energies coming forth through the Lion’s Gate were quite indescribable, and the feeling and experience of this new and higher vibrating reality is indeed. . .I can only say. . . quite heavenly and nothing short of amazing. I hope to bring these energies to my new offering in a way that is easy to absorb for all. I would love for you to join me!

Thank you all for the many years you have joined me in the past, as we forged our way into new territory and quite beyond. I could not have continued to write without you all by my side. Until we meet again. . .

My heart to yours,

  1. My physical body has changed from a couple years back.my skin is an oliveish color,never had before,it is thinner,my joints & muscles are fluidish,I wake up stretched.my blue eyes are very deep and drifty.


  2. Thank you Whitehawk, been dealing with these energetics since 1993 or even earlier, it’s been beyond hard, and my life stripped of all I’d identified with in any way, shape, or form,

    Love the classic car analogy, and your update on Kairon, currently I’m dealing with an antiquated Mac and doing most everything on a handheld Samsung Galaxy, so far away from my life as epicenter Silicon Valley pioneer and ISP Co founder in 1993

    What’s it all cone to, maybe they’re indeed opening some kind of bizarre portal w CERN as I saw in a vision back in 1998, having just flown back from Geneva to San Francisco,

    There was a film trailer on 2013 that’s been pulled re this topic, not sure what to make of it, but an exposition of Revelation is beginning to become more understandable now

    God bless you, Daphné/Kachinabluestar


  3. “I used to liken this group as the ‘classic cars’ that did not come off the assembly line with all the “newfangled accoutrements” of the new models… the new ones being designed for these energies to begin with.”

    The forerunners *sses got kicked… not because we weren’t designed to do this work, but because we were very few doing it. This was not our “role” that we necessarily came for, it’s what we ended up with because we were the only ones stepping up to do it.

    Frankly, many of those who identify as “star seeds” who were to be bringing in new energy did not have Earth experience and got very caught up in the 3D Earth program here and didn’t get with the ascension program very early or very willingly. They could probably stand to be more present and quit with their fascination of where they have been before (other star systems) and tend to the task at hand. Many of them have resisted their process and have clung to 3D ways.

    Some are now just getting to the point where they can hold light in the world after the incoming light has hammered ’em for the last 1 1/4 years. They are not “ascension-ready” so can’t do what the forerunners have done but they don’t need to as we’ve already done all the heavy lifting, transmuting and light anchoring. Many think they are first wavers but their REAL light (energy) work is just beginning.

    Still other light workers have not gotten far enough into their healing process to even feel much of it. They think they are the cream of the crop but they’ve barely gotten started.

    • And, Whitehawk, just to let you know…

      As I’ve said on my blog, after many years of intense energy service work, I have not been used for energy work since Sept. 2014. My friend that I talk about on my blog has been used a handful of times this past year.

      So, I recently had a chit chat with God and found out that God is not allowing myself and 20-some other forerunners (of the ~145,000 forerunners) to be used any more. We’re completely spent. I seriously wouldn’t doubt that it would kill us to use us more. One clue to that is that I am not bouncing back much in the last 1 1/4 years. I feel like an old worn-out workhorse that has had the burden lifted off my back but I’m still worn-out. Over the years of energy work, when I was given a break it was like night and day and I would go take long walks for however long I was left to be, but not this time. I have to just focus on what I absolutely have to do outwardly, which isn’t much, and yet that little bit, well, I can’t imagine doing any more at this point.

      And yet, even the ~1 million of other “ascension-ready” folks cannot do what we forerunners can do!!!

      God told me my friend has slightly more left to give than the overall average of forerunners and yet I know how spent they are too, which doesn’t say much for the whole forerunner force.

      So, bottom line, one way or another – whether we are so spent God won’t let us be used, they do use us until it kills us or we and Gaia ascend – the forerunners’ days of service work are either done (like in my case) or very soon will be (as is the case for all other forerunners). With that in mind, other light workers have absolutely got to step up and quit messing around with their healing and get down to bidness. They also need to completely let go of 3D and I’m not talking to just get themselves ascension-ready but even to adequately hold the light in 3D, they have to really get with it.

      The fact that the forerunners cannot / will not be used anymore puts the pressure on light workers. And, as our days of service very soon come to an end (in whatever way, for whatever reason) the challenges of 3D will pick up a bit. I don’t anticipate any huge catastrophes, no WWIII or the like, but perhaps needless to say, all the ongoing raping of the environment is really not slowing down any. At a physical level, 3D Earth is already in “scorched earth” mode. And you know the cabal won’t stop their nonsense.

      I don’t say any of this to generate fear, but to get light workers to pull off their rose-colored glasses and get down to the business of assisting the planet and collective in a much more serious and energetic (literally) way. This also includes all the “celebrity light worker” types who like to do the conferences, etc. They too will be asked to finally do their inner work in earnest.

      The one advantage that the light workers have is sheer numbers. We forerunners had ~145,000. This big group of non-ascension-ready light workers who pushed through their process enough to hold the light for 3D has ~15 million. If they get serious about their own healing work and then remember that ultimately they are here to assist the planet and collective, then they should be able to hold the world together long enough to get some folks awakened, healed and ascended.

      Blueprints are laid in and that bridge connecting 3D Earth to 5D Gaia will remain in place, just up to everyone to get themselves across.


    • Loving the clarity from you… “this was not our “role” that we necessarily came for…”

      – gosh; that is so ‘it’.

      Many times I’ve said to myself: “this is not even the best use of my skillset! What a waste of ‘me’…”

      I had so much more to offer than kindergarten shennanigans, to Hafiz’s “rowdy prisoners” who do *not* even understand what language I am speaking, let alone what I’m saying.

      Obviously, being a non-celebrity, my reach is not even that far…
      Regardless, I do get on with business – check out my blog (or even just the new site I’ve just built: http://www.spacesoflove.weebly.com -blog has post on “how you can help”)

      And SUCH a breath of fresh air to read/hear from you.

      If even more you feel compelled to peruse my vision/direction, my personal site: http://www.mardishakti.weebly.com has a page on it titled “vision”; pretty sure it is those things I *could* have been doing, instead of yard duty. ;)



      • Iris, I took a look at your sites. Yeah, the good food thing is huge. I know a young gal who has a young child. She probably doesn’t make much money but she knows how “they” keep people down through poor nutrition so she found a food bank that deals with only natural, whole, organic food. People can’t think straight if they don’t get the right nutrition. How can they “wake up” when they can’t even function properly.

        Yep, you just keep holding the vision. You are energizing the “do-ers”, ya know. Thank you for doing so.


  4. Hi Iris. Yeah, I hear ya. I could have been good at a whole variety of things but what I was used for was for what had to happen that hardly anyone else was doing or was capable of doing at the time.

    Then it doesn’t help any that many of the “celebrity” (lol) types are as recalcitrant as can be. Ya can’t tell ’em nothing. Many of them served as my “teachers” (re-minders) and yet they obviously are not very good students, of others or of Life itself as they got stuck on the plateau of a niche’ they found where they could peddle something to people.

    And what we forerunners have done energetically, the knock-down, drag-out exhaustion and all… is so far from their paradigm they can’t even “see” us. They truly have no idea how precarious this whole situation has been at times and have no idea who has been holding it all together. Meanwhile they take their sweet time doing their own healing, acting like and telling others that this will be a long, endless process. *shaking head* They really seem to have a tough time thinking outside the 3D box while they go on about not feeling like they fit in here. None of us do, but some of us are actually PROACTIVELY changing things not just waiting to see what’s next.

    In reference to this big group of light workers who were / are really the “second wave” or could have been, but who have been the log jam in this entire effort and had literally stalled Gaia’s ascension until we got some sovereign allies above the veil to direct more light through the sun etc…. the other day, through Tarot, God used this to describe them: “excessive and destructive self-indulgence” and God said that was all about to change. Time to face the music.

    I will indeed check out your site(s).


    • That is some great, overdue GOOD news, GAF… thanks. :D xx

      Tell your friend about the SoL site, if she wants to go on the map, or anything.

      Really want to rebuild tribes and tribal lore, and take care of mothers; land/earth/gaia/matter/mata/mother belongs back under their vast and Loving gaze… Look forward to keeping a bright-eye on you!


  5. Reblogged this on Blue Dragon Journal and commented:
    A piece by Karen Bishop, one of the forerunners of the forerunners. Posting to my blog as it explains a lot of what I, too, have been going through although not to the degree (physically) as has Karen. Blessings to all the First Wavers. Job well done!


  6. Hi,:-)
    Thanks, Hoooo Karen, her ascension manual kind of saved my life at some point, I feel blessed to read this article from her!
    Yes so true… since September 2015, I feel my feet on the floor and exisisting like never bevore, this feeling of having my place here on this new grid… but yes still some adjustment to process, and so the physical body is still “behind”, need to catch up…
    Looking forward to what will unfold in September this year!


  7. I just came across this post. Thank you so much for giving us a glimpse and an update. I and several of my family used to follow you regularly. I looked forward to each and every one you sent out. You were greatly missed when the energy updates ended. You have crossed my mind many times, especially recently. I was thrilled to see your words. Sending you lots of light, loving energies & virtual hugs. May 2016 find you enjoying life without the harsh physical challenges you’ve endured in the past. 💖😃


  8. Here’s one of Karen’s little ‘humdingers’ from 2006… funny how she’s vanished from the ‘ascension scene’ in recent years… must be all that ‘higher level energy stuff’ coming in and messing with her…

    “If you are a healer (or were), for example, and experiencing a big drop in business, it is because your role as a healer is over. There is no more need for it. Whatever our roles were for the first phase, they were designed to assist in reaching critical mass. Therefore, these roles are no longer needed.”

    What a twit… thank God she’s no longer online polluting vulnerable minds with such rubbish.


    • Beaumont Miles – I suspect you may be one of the younger ones that Karen is referring to, who seems to think you know all about ascension and what we’ve been through because you’ve read a few books. A true healer or higher level soul would never judge another lightworker and her contributions as you have done, much less call her a “twit”, my dear. I’ve also been on my path since 1992, and received the same messages from my guides around the 2006 period, advising me that my work as a healer was done. The new energy was making the healing modalities we pioneered obsolete, and new ones would be unfolding. We had gotten the ball rolling as it were, and the next generation was to step up and carry their portion of the load, as our physical bodies were beginning to feel the miles we had on us. Most of us forerunners are now suffering debilitating physical issues, which we know will be healed when we finally hit ascension…that was the promise made to us. But we keep going…we keep trying to help as best we can. We as forerunners helped humanity and Gaia to reach critical mass, and your generation was to then do YOUR clearing work, to allow us to fully complete the mission of pulling the entire world into the New Age. But Karen is right. Many of you seem to have fallen into the “I’m more spiritual than you are” ego trap, and have fallen off the track. Time to look at yourselves with more humility, and gratitude for those who have come before you. Who do you think wrote those books you’ve read, and pioneered those techniques you use? You have much work to do, and time is short.


  9. Much love, hugs, and blessings going out to you Karen! I’ve missed your messages over the years, and I’m glad we’re getting close to the new world we’ve all been working so hard to achieve. Namaste!
